Quick pop quiz! Here is a history question. What year did World War II start? If you said 1940, you were close. 1939. Also known as the Second War, this global war lasted for 6 years, ending in 1945. At that time, you had to enlist in the draft if you were a male between the ages of 18 and 45. As a result, the youngest people enlisted in the draft were born in 1921.
A US Army veteran, Frank Levingston, joined the fight in 1943 at the age of 38. Wait, so how old is he!? Born in 1905, Levingston is currently 109, but 110 years old in a few days on November 13th! That makes Mr. Levingston America’s oldest living veteran! To that age is truly a blessing, but you do not have to tell Frank Levingston that.
